Windows 10 users – Issues importing the free brush .zip files

If you are using the Windows 10 version of SketchBook, you might be having issues with importing the free weekly brushes. The .zip format is an issue when using the Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer browser to download the free brushes. To correct this issue, use a different browser, such as Google Chrome. The zipped file will download correctly and you will have .skbrushes format files.

The zipped files can be imported into the Desktop version of SketchBook.

Some of the brushes from older posts won’t work on the Windows 10 version.

Brushes missing after an update

Did you just update to the latest version of SketchBook to find your brushes are gone? Don’t fear. They aren’t. You just need to log into your subscription to load the Pro tools and your brushes.
